Google Generative AI Provider

The Google Generative AI provider contains language model support for the Google Generative AI APIs. It creates language model objects that can be used with the generateText and streamText functions.


The Google provider is available in the @ai-sdk/google module. You can install it with

pnpm install @ai-sdk/google

Provider Instance

You can import the default provider instance google from @ai-sdk/google:

import { google } from '@ai-sdk/google';

If you need a customized setup, you can import createGoogleGenerativeAI from @ai-sdk/google and create a provider instance with your settings:

import { createGoogleGenerativeAI } from '@ai-sdk/google';
const google = createGoogleGenerativeAI({
// custom settings

You can use the following optional settings to customize the Google Generative AI provider instance:

  • baseURL string

    Use a different URL prefix for API calls, e.g. to use proxy servers. The default prefix is

  • apiKey string

    API key that is being send using the x-goog-api-key header. It defaults to the GOOGLE_GENERATIVE_AI_API_KEY environment variable.

  • headers Record<string,string>

    Custom headers to include in the requests.

Language Models

You can create models that call the Google Generative AI API using the provider instance. The first argument is the model id, e.g. models/gemini-pro. The models support tool calls and some have multi-modal capabilities.

const model = google('models/gemini-pro');

Google Generative AI models support also some model specific settings that are not part of the standard call settings. You can pass them as an options argument:

const model = google('models/gemini-pro', {
topK: 0.2,

The following optional settings are available for Google Generative AI models:

  • topK number

    Optional. The maximum number of tokens to consider when sampling.

    Models use nucleus sampling or combined Top-k and nucleus sampling. Top-k sampling considers the set of topK most probable tokens. Models running with nucleus sampling don't allow topK setting.
